This page contains photos of the Camp Shoshanah Messianic Bible Study Camp taken during 1983. While the main purpose of Camp is the study of the Scriptures from the original  Jewish frame of reference, we always manage to have a lot of Kosher fun, and these photos mainly show the fun!  (photos by Mottel B)

Ariel Staff and Guest Teachers in 1983, from left: Linda & Greg Hagg, Liz & Barney Kasdan, Michael Rydelnik,  Arnold Fruchtenbaum, Dave & Faye Walz,
Arlene & Dan Rigney. Dave & Faye were the resident caretakers along with their children. Dave completed a number of building projects in those early years.
(sorry for the slight glow effect, I used saturated Kodachrome on a high contrast sunny day, then an unusual scan)

In 1983 the Shmata Shop occupied a back corner of the Lecture Hall/Dining Hall (same room). Arlene Rigney was the Proprietor.

There's always Messianic Praise Music at Camp Shoshanah. 1983 saw Deborah & Mottel leading.

In 1983 the last Friday evening of Camp was reserved for "EXTRAVAGANZA" NIGHT, a mash-up of Talent Show, Complex Comedy Skits, etc.
Here, the scholarly Dr. Hagg is the mastermind of a Band of Kid Killer Bees, in a take-off of a popular Saturday Night TV Show.

Mary Ann & Arnold Fruchtenbaum, 1983. What is that mischievous look on Arnolds face??

In 1983 the Cooks & Kitchen staff presented a song skit with lyrics for the occasion.
